for that position by president obama and sworn in in october of 2009 and we are all the lucky -- we are all very lucky that that happened in october of 2009. tom has spent his entire career in public service and on protecting the civil rights of our most vulnerable people. tom actually joined the civil rights division as a young lawyer and while he was there he prosecuted some of the most significant cases in the country. lawyers in the civil rights division get fanned out to places in the country to handle cases in mississippi and alabama and california and all over and tom was one of those people. he was sent to texas to handle a very significant hate crime case when he was a young lawyer that involved a gang of white supremacists that went on a killing spree and ended up shooting 3 people and killing one when he was a young lawyer working in the civil rights division. he later served as a top deputy for attorney general janet reno, he was special counsel to ted kennedy and served as the president's advisor on civil rights issues. he was also director for civil rights at the department o

since president obama came in, absolute hard and fast positions, little compromise between democrats and republicans on capitol hill. it's been deadlocked. public opinion on the place that soured badly. you're seeing progress, particularly in the senate, you're seeing this by partisan, albeit weakened, but nonetheless fairly significant step on gun control. the so-called gang of eight is coming out with immigration reform next week. these are things nobody thought was possible many months ago. why guns? the n.r.a. is probably the most powerful lobby in washington. there are members of congress that will not thwart them under think circumstances. this step was a pretty significant victory. cenk: but beth, real quick let me talk about the soft budgetary of low expectations. doesn't the system reward object 16 net republicans. they say we will not under any circumstances. isn't that the correct political path for republicans? >> president obama said when he first introduced gun legislation in january, he said the only way this is going to work is if there's a substantial outcry from the

people say good. he says the president's budget strategy may almost surely fail. he wrote that obama's proposal is all about the political positioning using the help of ez are klein -- or as you like to call him -- >> ersa. >> stephanie: krugman writes it will fail because there are no grown ups. the gop response tepid so far. and response from obama's own supporters has been even more negative. i think it's a typical republican plot by the way, jim, the post office as you said their plan is to privatize everything. >> right. >> stephanie: they have backed off of a plan to halt mail delivery. they said congress has left us no choice but to delay the five-day a week plan. the dilemma for the post service is not payer funded but governed by congress so it competes against ups and fedex, and is one of the largest employers in the country. >> uh-huh. and there are people in rural areas that don't get things from ups -- >> stephanie: right. it is forcing us into insolvency. so they can privatize it like everything else. right back on the "stephanie miller show."

. but at this time, we should take the firm, but measured positions, not to fall into traps of north koreans, what they are ratcheting up this attention. it's just to frighten south korea and other allies. and i was very much encouraged by president obama. he just assured that the united states will respect the treaty, the obligations and commitment for the republic of korea. >> the pressure is building in south korea to develop its own nuclear weapon, to combat north korea if necessary. what do you say about that? >> i don't think it is the general views of the south korean people, the south korean government has assured and committed to continued accreditation of the korean peninsula in their joint declaration with the north korean 1992. i'm sure that south korea will continue to abide by that declaration. >> are you ready to go to pyongyang and meet with kim jong-un? >> i have made it consistently clear that i am ready to visit the dprk when and if my visit is helpful, and in close coordination with the concerned parties, particularly the republic of korea and the united states. >> stand by for
